A crackling fire is nice, but cleaning up can be such a chore. Worse, still-smoldering ashes stored on an outside deck are a common cause of house fires.
The Cheetah II vacuum is specially designed for cleaning a fireplace, wood or pellet stove. Its dual filters capture super-fine ash without clogging up. The primary filter is fire resistant to 1,000 degrees in case you accidentally suck up a hot ember.
The three-gallon tub, hose and nozzle are metal, so if you are picking up hot stuff, your hands will be the first to know. The manufacturer recommends that you stop vacuuming if the hose gets too hot to handle.
